Cultural, regulatory and socio-economic factors governing the attitudes and uses of traditional Chinese medicine in France and Italy


This paper will analyse the cultural, regulatory (legislative) and socio- economic factors affecting TCM use, specifically in France and Italy. Comparisons between the two countries will help to illustrate the significance of the different factors. This analysis will provide insights into areas in which potential changes and policies can be implemented to remove existing barriers and increase potential uptake and use of TCM, to ultimately enhance the healthcare provision to patients.
